Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Although the Dzogchen teachings are principally familiar to Westerners through the teachings of the Nyingma school, they also survive in the ancient Bön Religion of Tibet. Wonders of the Natural Mind presents Dzogchen as taught in the Zhang Zhung Nyan Gyud, the fundamental Bön text. The book summarizes the main points of Dzogchen and its relation to the various systems of Bön teaching. In offering these teachings, Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche provides the reader with a vivid and engaging portrait of Bön culture as he interweaves the teachings with his personal story and reflections on the practice of Dzogchen in the West.

Synopsis:

Wonders of the Natural Mind is a presentation of Dzogchen as taught in the Tibetan Bon tradition.

In Wonders of the Natural Mind, the author presents the Dzogchen teachings based on the Zhang Zhung Nyan Gyud, the fundamental Bon text, and also gives his personal reflections on the practice of Dzogchen in the West.

Taylor, July 28, 2010 (view all comments by Taylor)
I highly recommend this book as an excellent introduction to the Bon tradition of Tibet. In this book the author explains what the Bon tradition is and how it differs from Buddhist beliefs and practices. The author explores in depth the foundational beliefs and practices of the Bon tradition while also explaining how they can be meaningfully applied to the life of the practitioner. What I like is that its also clear that this tradition has its own perspective on emptiness, which I found useful for getting a new perspective on it. Overall, I recommend this book for anyone serious about doing internal work.
